Biography

dith Piaf (, ;French: [edit pjaf] (listen); born dith Giovanna Gassion, French: [edit d vana asj ]; 19 December 1915 – 10 October 1963) was a French singer-songwriter, cabaret performer and film actress noted as France’s national chanteuse and one of the country’s most widely known international stars.
Piaf’s music was often autobiographical, and she specialized in chanson and torch ballads about love, loss and sorrow. Her most widely known songs include “La Vie en rose” (1946), “Non, je ne regrette rien” (1960), “Hymne l’amour” (1949), “Milord” (1959), “La Foule” (1957), “L’Accord oniste” (1940), and “Padam, padam…” (1951).
Since her death in 1963, several biographies and films have studied her life, including 2007’s Academy Award-winning La Vie en rose. Piaf has become one of the most celebrated performers of the 20th century.
